Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 8 ounces low sodium , lite andouille sausage, sliced into 1/2-inch coins*
  • 8 ounces sliced mushrooms (cremini or baby portobella work great)
  • 1 yellow onion , sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves , minced
  • 1 to 1.5 teaspoons dried thyme
  • salt and fresh ground pepper , to taste
  • 3 cups low sodium , fat free chicken broth
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup low fat 2% evaporated milk**
  • 1 pound dry whole wheat ziti pasta (you can also use gluten free pasta)
  • 1 cup grated parmesan cheese + more for garnish
  • chopped fresh parsley , for garnish

Instructions 

  • Heat olive oil in a large pan or non stick skillet.
  • Add sliced sausages, mushrooms, onion, and garlic; season with thyme, salt and pepper and cook, stirring frequently, for 6 to 8 minutes, or until mushrooms are tender.
  • Stir in water, chicken broth and evaporated milk; bring to a boil and add the pasta.
  • Continue to cook for 10 minutes, or until pasta is done, stirring every 1-2 minutes to keep pasta from clumping together.
  • Add parmesan cheese and stir until well incorporated and you have a smooth sauce.
  • Remove from heat and sauce will thicken as it stands.
  • Garnish with fresh parsley and a sprinkle of parmesan.
  • Serve.

Notes

  • Andouille sausage is high in sodium; please look for lite, low sodium chicken or turkey andouille sausage.
  • If you want a thicker sauce, at the end of cooking the pasta, spoon 1 tablespoon of the evaporated milk sauce into a mixing bowl and add 1 tablespoon corn starch; whisk until thoroughly combined and stir it all back into the skillet; continue to cook and stir for about 1 minute.
